Audio Book Summary

David Sedaris plays in the snow with his sisters. He goes on vacation with his family. He gets a job selling drinks. He attends his brother's wedding. He mops his sister's floor. He gives directions to a lost traveler. He eats a hamburger. He has his blood sugar tested. It all sounds so normal, doesn't it? In his newest collection of essays, David Sedaris lifts the corner of ordinary life, revealing the absurdity teeming below its surface. His world is alive with obscure desires and hidden motives -- a world where forgiveness is automatic and an argument can be the highest form of love. Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim is another unforgettable collection from one of the wittiest and most original writers at work today.

    Wearing AirPods and listening DS tell his stories is one of my greatest joys these days! I literally laugh out as I listen to his books while out on walks in my neighborhood.

    I found myself laughing hysterically in traffic at certain points. People were wondering what was wrong with me! Loved it and will be ordering for Sedaris books.

    One of his better books. It took me a bit to adjust to the very deadpan way he reads his own book, I was disappointed at first until I realized that the way in which he read them made the stories funnier than the way I had read previous ones in my head. Very funny!

    What's so funny about a depressing, disfunctional family. His stories made me feel sorry for him and then for me for listening to them.

    I'm not sure what to say beyond this is classic Sedaris. Dry wit, off the wall humor and strange stories that you find yourself laughing at, then wonder if it was ok to laugh at it. Cross Steven Wright, Bob Newhart and Denis Leary and you have something approximating David Sedaris.

    Gotta love him. As always, his first cut is his best. As Pema Chodrin says, you have to 'stay soft' when listening to him, but his books 'listen' far better than 'read'. I enjoyed the book and enjoy his mind.
